About this property
A quintessential Grade II Listed, stone-built thatched cottage with generously proportioned rooms, sitting in the heart of this popular village.
The accommodation comprises an entrance hall giving access to the ground floor WC, storage cupboard with plumbing for washing machine and access on into the kitchen.
The kitchen layout is separated into two distinct areas. Part of the kitchen sits to the rear of the property with a range of floor standing and wall mounted cupboards and drawers under timber worktops. There is a Belfast sink, integrated fridge freezer and under counter microwave plus space for a freestanding range style cooker and plumbing for a dishwasher. A door leads to the rear garden. An archway leads to the second part of the kitchen offering a large central island with granite worktop cupboards and an integrated drawer fridge. An exposed red brick chimney breast houses the AGA.
The kitchen flows to a large seating and dining area with a further Inglenook fireplace. The dining area gives way to a large light filled formal living room with a wonderful stone fireplace and open fire and glazed French doors leading out to the garden.
A staircase rises from the dining area to the first-floor landing with exposed timber flooring. The principal bedroom is a generous size with built-in wardrobes and space for freestanding furniture. A beautifully appointed ensuite shower room includes a low flush lavatory, pedestal wash hand basin and shower.
Bedroom two is a large light filled double room with built-in storage and bedroom three is a small double with views over the garden.
The landing is sizeable enough to accommodate a study area, making the first-floor accommodation incredibly flexible. The main bathroom completes the internal accommodation with a Hi flush lavatory, pedestal wash hand basin and bath with shower over.
The property benefits from a gravelled driveway giving access to the detached garage with parking for vehicles plus storage area and fully fitted utility room.
The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a flagstone path winding to the front door. There is manicured low box hedging and mature shrub and floral borders providing year-round interest. The property has a further garden accessed off both the rear kitchen and the formal reception room. This walled garden has a flagstone patio area ideal for outdoor entertaining and a path that intersects the lawn to a further flagstone seating and dining area. This garden area also offers a charming timber summerhouse with power and lighting. This rear garden has matured floral and shrub borders as well as some specimen trees providing interest and a great degree of privacy.
The property offers a wonderful mix of historic character features combined with large living spaces all immaculately presented with craftsmanship to the highest standards.
